Neymar Joins Al-Hilal From Paris Saint-Germain On Two-Year Deal

Neymar Joins Al-Hilal From Paris Saint-Germain On Two-Year D

Neymar is the latest elite player to move to Saudi Arabia, joining Al-Hilal in a deal worth €90 million (£77.6 million) plus add-ons.

The 31-year-old Brazilian inked a two-year deal with Al-Hilal and gets a $300 million package record salary, which could go up to potential $400 million total until 2025 based on add-ons and commercial deals.

Al-Hilal confirmed his signing on Tuesday on Twitter, with a post captioned: "I am here in Saudi Arabia, I am Hilali."

It is understood that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) agreed to let Neymar go because he was not part of coach Luis Enrique's plans for the new season, marking an end to the  'Galacticos' era at Parc des Princes, with Lionel Messi also leaving the club earlier this summer.

A return to Barcelona was suggested to be his next move until he decided to follow Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Sadio Mane, N’Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez, and Jordan Henderson to the Saudi Pro League.

He enjoyed plenty of success at PSG after joining from Barcelona for a world-record fee of €222 million (£200 million) in 2017.

In 173 appearances he scored 118 goals and provided 77 assists, helping the club to win 13 domestic trophies and leading them to finish as runner-up in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final.

His time in the French capital was however hampered by injuries and off-field issues during a tumultuous six years.
